SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Women in Construction week was celebrated with a social and raffle in Downtown Savannah.

Dozens gathered at Cha Bella for a friendly Jenga competition with appetizers and gift card raffle. Proceeds from tickets go to the National Association of Women in Construction scholarship fund. That fund supports women pursuing degrees in a construction related field.

"Once a year we choose a Savannah Tech female student and award them a $1,500 scholarship and this year we also rewarded Windsor Forest with a $500 donation towards their construction program,” said NAWIC President Tonya Reed.

NAWICK has more than 7,000 members in 238 chapters, including the Coastal Georgia chapter.
